Memorial Day Weekend, BBQ and baseball.  Does it get anymore American than that? The I-70 Series between the St.Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals kicks off on Memorial Day at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. The Royals will host the first two games in the four game series and St. Louis will host the last two.

The I-70 series started in 1997. Through the 2012 season, the Cardinals hold the series advantage 45–34.

The St.Louis Cardinals are looking to make yet another deep run into the postseason. They are 8th in offensive ranking in the MLB and 1st in defensive ranking. They also lead the NL Central.

The Kansas City Royals are a young ball club and are still looking for its true identity. They got off to a hot start, but have sizzled off a bit since. The Royals are ranked 26th in offensive ranking in the MLB and 6th in defensive ranking.

So, who's going to win the series?  Let us know in our poll!
